[edit] Plans

Tchakkazulu and TheOtherGuy will try to make it. We'll also (hopefully) be picking up a load of caches on our way, and we have no idea about how long it'll take us. We're so very good at planning, it's ridiculous.

[edit] Expedition

[edit] TheOtherGuy's report

Yes, we we're off.

On the road to Belgium we got some supplies (water, food and batteries). After doing one cache in the Netherlands we crossed the border at Essen (see the pictures of the Belgian border). We passed through Kalmthout ("Kalmthout, als je van natuur houdt"), Brecht, and Zoersel (fairtrade gemeente). We had planned to be at the hash at 16:00, but as our planning skills are just so great, and took a few wrong turns, we were in the next town (Herentals) at 16:00. We went over nice and bumpy roads (The Poesdijk was especially memorable), and ended up at F.C. Heibloem (picture).

From there we continued on foot and met a llama and ducks. (Please look at this entirely hashing unrelated video on [1].) Around 16:45 we ended up at the hash, took pictures, and satisfied with ourselves, went caching.
